Criteria applies Award for Dawe Former Upper Hutt Senior Sergeant Peter Dawe has been presented with a badge to commemorate his 50 years as a Freemason.

Mr Dawe is well-known in Upper Hutt although he now lives in the Hawke's Bay. He was incorrectly named as Peter Doyle in an article on July 20. Tribute paid to axeman By ROSEMARY McLENNAN Woodchopping highlight: Goldy McIntosh competes in the 2002 New Zealand versus Australia veterans test at Reefton. The teams event was the third of three matches and won by New Zealand. Former world record holder Bill Yould was a member of the Australian team. Members of the Upper Hutt Axemen's Club stood for a minute's silence at their recent annual meet- ing to remember Goldy McIntosh who died earlier in the year. Upper Hutt Axemen's Club president John Dillon says members are grateful for Mr McInto- sh's contribution to the club and he will be forever held in high regard by this club''. William John Sneddon (Goldy) McIntosh was born into a mining family on the West Coast in 1939. He moved to Wellington in 1959 and worked in the Hutt Valley, including 29 years at Dulux Paints in Lower Hutt. He joined the Upper Hutt Axemen's Club in 1970. He represented the central region at New Zealand AA level and served as secretary of the central region for six years. He travelled every state in Australia and the length of New Zealand with his woodchopping. A highlight was managing the New Zealand under-21 team (colts) for seven years. A low was losing that first year, the highs win- ning for the subsequent six years. He later became a member of the New Zealand Veteran Axemen and his fondest memory was beating the former world record holder Bill Yould by two blows (chops) in a teams' series. He also won many medals in the masters' games. Mr McIntosh did a lot of practical work around the Trentham Memorial Park headquarters of the local club. He lived in Silverstream where he had a much-admired garden. He died, aged 71, on March 10 from bone cancer. His funeral was attended by more than 200 people.
